Broiled Salmon with Scallions, Honey-Lime, and Chile Pepper
This is a nice alternative to basic cooked salmon that takes a bit more time but is worth it. Pair with steamed vegetables.
Servings: 3 servings
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 2 teaspoons honey

Remainder of Recipe
- 3 skin-on center cut salmon fillets about 1/3 - 1/2 pound per person, evenly sized
- 1 bunch scallions
- 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
- 1 Fresno chile pepper thinly sliced
- sesame seeds for garnish
- In a small bowl, whisk together all marinade ingredients.
- Place salmon in a resealable plastic bag; add half of the marinade. Press out air, seal, and marinate 30 minutes. Reserve remaining marinade.
- Preheat broiler.
- In a large cast iron pan, toss scallions with vegetable oil. Broil until lightly charred, about 3 minutes.
- Remove salmon from marinade and set on top of scallions, skin side down. Spoon on some reserved marinade; broil until salmon is charred around edges, about 6 minutes.
- Spoon more marinade over; top with sliced chile pepper. Broil until salmon is charred and medium - rare at thickest part, about 2 minutes.
- Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.
While salmon is marinating, prepare the rest of your meal. Try lining the pan with foil for easier cleanup.
